Debt Recovery Services

LR Collections LimitedYour cash flow is our business.

Putting in place an effective credit control management system is fundamental, whatever the size of your business. Outstanding invoices over 30 days have an immediate impact on your monthly cash flow but chasing them requires time, sensitivity and a knowledge of the appropriate courses of action available to you. Other demands on your time and budget, staff absences or an ineffectual system can result in invoices not being tracked and pursued efficiently and arrears accruing.

Making late payments a thing of the past.

It’s crucial for any business to ensure that those you trade with do so on your terms, not theirs. As part of our credit management services, we offer the following, all designed to make your business more efficient and profitable.

Investigative Services

Take control with our investigative services.

For effective debt recovery you need reliable information to dictate collection tactics, particularly if you are considering pursuing legal action. Checking credit ratings and company and director histories to see whether they are solvent or have any other outstanding judgements against them is a pivotal element in deciding whether to incur the cost of legal proceedings.

And in the event that you’re considering offering credit, an accurate and up to date credit report is also essential.

Pre-legal Proceedings and Legal Action

Demystifying the pre legal and legal process of debt recovery.

If you’re not familiar with the legal system, the procedure for debt recovery can seem daunting and complex. But our experienced and friendly legal team will guide you through the process, explaining the procedure in easy to understand language and advising you of the most appropriate course of action.

LR Collections Limited

Pre-legal action procedure – is often all that it takes.

In the majority of cases a properly drafted letter before action (LBA) or late payment demand from a professional agency is all that it takes to ensure a debt is paid promptly.

Letter before action (LBA).

An effective LBA will contain sufficient information for the debtor to understand and identify the debt that is being claimed as well as the consequences of non-payment within the requested time. This is an informal letter issued by our legal team to a debtor requesting payment in the terms which should not cause offence but indicates that matters have progressed to the next level.

In order to be effective, a LBA has to include specific information. We’ll advise you of the information necessary and we’ll use our experience and expertise to present this information in the most appropriate and professional manner to ensure both a quick response and complete payment.

Late payment demands (LPD).

An alternative to a LBA, is a Late Payment Demand which allows you to claim interest and compensation under the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998.

Issuing and pursuing legal proceedings.

If we are unable to recover your debt by way of an LBA or LPD, where appropriate, our team of solicitors will discuss with you the possibility of pursing legal proceedings. We will never commence any legal proceedings without discussing the full implications and process with you first and we’ll keep you informed throughout. Our legal team can advise and assist you with:

  • Choosing and issuing the correct proceeding in the right court, including issuing a statutory demand, bankruptcy or winding up proceedings.
  • Pursing a defended claim and the filing of evidence.
  • Pursing an undefended claim.
  • Understanding and enforcing the judgement.
  • Where appropriate the recovery of the costs you’ve incurred.
